✿ Les Merveilleuses La Duree : Mixed pressed cheek colors ✿
✿ Every time I receive a package from Les Merveilleuses La Duree, I can't help but feeling amazed by their products. They are so beautiful, and elegant. It's like passing by a Patisserie and falling in awe, looking at the window.
And once again they work their magic with their new Mixed Pressed Cheek Color collection ! The collection has been inspired by Astrology, a "science" that Ms Josephine de Beauharnais (Napoleon's first wife) was following. "Relying on Lucky Star, you can instantly show your unique charm and appeal".
The collection included four different shades : Soleil, Lune, Meteore and Comete (Sun, Moon, Meteor and Comet).
✿103 Soleil : Pretty, sweet glow. Blend of red pink, powder pink and pale purple.Element : Fire (Active, passionate, energetic, cheerful, intuitive, frank (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius))
✿ 104 Lune : Natural looking, delicate glow. Blend of light orange, white lavender and pale yellow. Element : Earth (steady, stable, reliable, rely on their senses (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn))
✿105 Meteore : Gentle, lucid glow. Blend of lavender, pink, bright pink and coral orange.Element : Air (versatile, outgoing, free-spirited, curious, communicative (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius))
✿106 Comete : Fresh, clear glow. Blend of blue pink, carrot orange and peppermint green.Element : Water (Calm, romantic, kind, sensitive, trust their own feelings (Cancer, Scorpio, pieces))
I find it very fun to not only choose your shade according to your preference, or your complexion, but also by your astrological sign :D and it can also be a very thoughtful present to make to someone <3
✿ The mix of colors in each pressed cheek colors nuances each tones present. This way it gives a complex and pretty colors. I like the soft, pastle tones. Perfect for Spring and Summer.
✿ I also like that they are shimmer free, and completely matte. This formula enhances the wearer's naturally glowing complexion.
✿ The powder wears for very long too, as the powder particules are coated with oil, which makes it non-drying for the skin and enable a longer wear !
✿ The application is very easy. You can definitely use the blush given with the pressed cheek, as they are easy to use. Swirl on the pan, and apply, You will notice a soft and even application, that can easily be amplified if needed :)
The blush packaging in light blush is a Summer Limited Edition.
(love the details at the back on the pan !)
